Many of our customers are keen to reduce their carbon footprint through the use of more environmentally friendly materials. Like our customers, House of Flags is also dedicated to ensuring ever improving environmental practices. We now offer a brand new ECO banner material, which is equal in strength and durabiltiy to standard 440gsm PVC, but is completely PVC free, making it fully recyclable.
- 100% Recyclable
- PVC Free
- Equal strength
- 1/2 the carbon footprint
Our Eco Banners are PVC free, making them fully recyclable. Despite being half the weight of our standard PVC, our ECO Banner is equally as strong. Making it durable and effective. When producing our ECO Banner it uses a 50% smaller carbon footprint than our standard PVC. This makes it one of the most environmentally friendly PVC alternatives currently available.
Our PVC free ECO Banner is ideal for companies wanting to become more environmentally sustainable. This material allows you to show off your brand and promotional messages, whilst reducing your carbon footprint and become more environmentally friendly. The material is 100% recyclable and can be printed to a max width of 2.5m, it is 260gsm and is fire rated to B1.
Ask us about our new Pollutant eating coating which we can apply to your flags!
EnhanceAir®, Powered by PURETiTM Light-activated coating that destroys air pollution.
When applied to outdoor advertising media, EnhanceAir turns any treated material into an air purifying surface that not only enhances human health, but contributes to the fight against global warming.
- The coating is transparent and does not impact the appearance or durability of the ad itself.
- Typically applied as the last step in the printing process.
- No changes are required in the installation process.
- It does not affect the recyclability of the material.
THE SCIENCE OF ENHANCEAIR: PHOTOCATALYSIS
When UVA light energy activates the coating, it starts a chemical process that turns nearby oxygen and water vapor into two powerful cleaning agents (OH-* and O2-*)
• These two cleaning agents convert pollutants into harmless minerals and gasses.
• The active mineral is a catalyst, so it is not consumed in the process. It continues to work as long as it is on the surface and has access to humidity and light.
• The process happens only at the surface and repeats constantly to clean the surface and the air that comes in contact with it.
Nitrogen oxides (NO and NO2) are formed during combustion. NOx is harmful in several ways:
• It irritates airways and increases susceptibility to allergens.
• It combines with other pollutants in the air to create smog, acid rain, PM2.5 and ground level ozone, which contributes to global warming.
• Increases risk of heart disease, stroke, COPD, and lung cancer.
• It has a much higher Global Warming Potential than CO2.
NOx is an indirect greenhouse gas. It does not trap heat directly, but leads to the creation of other gases, like ozone, that are greenhouse gases. It is included on the list of gases that countries report in their greenhouse gas inventories.
EnhanceAir fights climate change and improves human health by destroying NOx and other pollutants. It helps lower the greenhouse gas footprint, but not the carbon footprint.
Proven Laboratory and Real World Results
Using a test based on the ISO 22197-1 standard, we pass a fixed amount of NOx across a treated surface where the air is in contact with the surface for only 1 second on average before being replaced by new polluted air at the same concentration. The concentration of NOx is measured as it exits the chamber.
